BEIRUT: The Lebanese Army said Saturday it arrested one of the most notorious wanted men in the eastern town of Baalbek after thorough investigation and surveillance.

Ali Ahmad Jaafar is wanted for several arrest warrants for his alleged involvement in the abduction of four people including a Syrian man and the son of a prominent Lebanese businessman in return of a ransom, the Army said in a statement.

The man is also accused of arms and drug trading as well as forming a gang to kidnap people at gunpoint.

The Army said that soldiers exchanged fire with two vehicles when the Army intelligence unit was making its way to Jaafar's location in Rad al-Ain.

Jaafar had several weapons and hand grenades in his possession at the time of his arrest.
